Course Outline

A variety of drawing media may be utilised including, pencils, acrylic and oil or watercolour paint. This course is hands on and very interactive.

This course commences with two weeks of drawing where various aspects such as tone, line, shape and good observation are covered. Then students are introduced to mixing colours in the painting medium of their choice. A different subject matter, such as skies, trees, water, still life, flowers, landscape, etc. will be introduced each week. Students can suggest the topic for the following week.

For the last two weeks of the course students are invited to work on a subject of their own. Experienced students are welcome to follow their own interest throughout the course with the tutor’s assistance.

Topics include:

  • Tone, form, line, basic shapes
  • Still life
  • Figures
  • Landscapes
  • Composition and scale
  • Mixing colours
  • Working outdoors

Course Outcome

By the end of the course students will have completed a number of drawings and paintings and will have gained skills in handling a number of different subjects.

The group setting allows students to enjoy the pleasure of the creative process and the companionship of fellow students, whilst improving skills in drawing and painting. There is no pass or fail in art – and taking time out for yourself on a regular basis and applying your creative eye is invariably good for the soul!
